What a strange year for the family Estevez. Although Charlie Sheen dominated the headlines with his talk of “winning” and tiger’s blood (and his appropriate termination from Two and a Half Men), older-brother Emilio Estevez offers up the best work of his career, behind the camera (and a little onscreen) with The Way. Directing the brothers’ more-esteemed father, Martin Sheen, Estevez delivers a moving, inspirational surprise. The title refers to the famed trek of self-revelation that Camino de Santiago and its 500-mile walk has offered over the centuries, which Sheen does to honor the memory of his son. Most movies covering this ground would schmaltz it up, but Estevez plays it as straight as possible. It’s a story. About people. Who want to accomplish something. And the biggest accomplishment here is reserved for Emilio Estevez.
